Ameron International Corporation: Second quarter 2002 sales and profits of the performance coatings and finishes group of Ameron International Corporation were lower than in the second quarter of 2001. As in the first quarter, sales of high-performance coatings declined in the U.S. and European markets. However, sales of light industrial finishes in the UK, Australia and New Zealand increased over the same period in the prior year, reflecting general economic improvements, according to the company. Heavy industrial markets, such as offshore and petrochemical, remain soft.
